Project Manager, Engineering Reviews

What is it like working as a Project Manager, Engineering?
Project Manager, Engineering in New York:
"It Is 60% Scheduling, 20% Client Relations And 20% Technical."
Pros: The best things about my job are the environment which is very open and friendly. It is in midtown Manhattan, ideal location. The clients all have technical backgrounds so even if there is something you don't know or can't remember, someone will enlighten you. Engineering is very important to know because it allows you to work within teams from other departments as well since our work ethic is regarded highly. I am able to go from location to location to conduct some of my work, which breaks the monotony of going into the office every time.
Cons: There are a lot of limitations to project scopes. There are some actions that can be done, but company policy dictates that it shouldn't, so you end up discussing with clients for long periods of time trying to find a reason that would satisfy them. A lot of scheduling will overlap, but you still need to maintain the budget and timeline.
Project Manager, Engineering in Sedro-Woolley:
"Challenging."
Pros: It's mentally challenging and always new. Every project is different and there is no opportunity to become bored.
Cons: It can be stressful constantly having new things thrown at you.
